&ABILITY is a wooden table that can contain different components: lampshades, bowls, wicker baskets or ceramic vases, "each of them carrying its own identity, even though they're part of the same project." says Fabbian.

"The name itself, &ABILITY, is the union between the junction par excellence, '&', (from Latin, Et) and 'ability', to underline the importance of sharing different expertise."

Inspired by real social networks, not virtual ones, "&ABILITY wants to interpret networks as personal and business intersections reflecting culture and land, through unique and matchless know-how."

"Components are connected in a dynamic dialogue and may be combined upon user's taste and needs, creating different compositions, in which weaving is the continuity element."
